San Francisco transplants turn the interior of a 1920s bungalow into their own Broad Ripple playground.

When Deborah Jacobs and Alan Leerkamp moved to Indy from California, they captured Broad Ripple’s playful, artsy spirit in their bungalow just south of the main strip like they’d been living in the area for years. That’s what happens – even if unintentionally – when great creative minds collaborate: Deborah, an art director and designer who has refurbished the homes of Google employees, partnered with HAUS, a local architecture studio with a contemporary edge, on a six-month renovation project. “They really get it,” says Chris Short, principal architect at HAUS. “Most people don’t have those kinds of [creative] interests and skills. We were speaking the same language.”
“Humbly and proudly I profess my competence under the discipline of architecture.
Upon my honor I promise unending devotion to the task of continually studying, learning, seeking, experimenting, that I may become ever better educated and trained for my work.
Upon my honor I promise to my community undeviating adherence to the ideal service to my fellow men, as the goal of my effort, that I may honestly and fully earn my living – my right to live among them.
Upon my honor I promise to maintain that integrity in practice which will insure to each client the finest possible stewardship of his interest.
Upon my honor I promise in the execution of every commission to strive to create beauty as well as order, character as well as safety, spiritual value as well as convenience.
Upon my honor I promise to join with my fellow architects to make our profession of greatest possible usefulness and benefit to our society, to share and disseminate all valuable professional knowledge, and to pass on to the succeeding generation the full and fine discipline of our profession, enriched because of my dedication.”
– State of Indiana Architect’s Oath
On April 23, 2016, our team member Paul was recognized in a formal architect’s licensing ceremony by the State of Indiana and the Indiana chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The Architect’s Licensing Ceremony used to be a sort of right of passage until roughly a decade ago when the State ceased holding the ceremony. Historically, those honored in the ceremony were individuals who had become licensed in the previous year. In 2016, in conjunction with AIA Indiana, the State decided to resume the architect’s licensing ceremony!
As part of the ceremony, the newest licensees were given words of wisdom by a fellow architect as she told stories of blazing a trail as a young architect. Following the words of wisdom, each licensee was individually recognized and presented with a signed and sealed license certificate. To conclude the ceremony the licensees recited the architect’s oath (above) as the many had done previously.
We would like to extend our warmest congratulations to all of those architects licensed in the past year. Having gone through the journey, we know the arduous adventure becomes more of an exciting exploration. We wish you all the best in your careers ahead.
